Finally, you come out with it. Jor-el, good grief man. That gave me chuckles.
I wanted you to know, dear ryceratops, that everything you knew about your family is incorrect. ryceratops, I am your father.
Here's another take - I think we're all so wrapped up with being the most deadliest animal on this planet that we make up dire shit that has nothing to do with us to make ourselves feel even more melodramatic and omnipotent.
Anyway, the reason for the joke about Al Gore is due to GWB saturation - too many jokes.
If you can't laugh about global warming, then I dunno what to say.
When this first started, I expected some laughs, especially from people also getting a bunch of snow.
Then I started receiving not laughs but a shitty education about a subject that quite frankly, like most subjects of serious business, despite my understanding and time spent on my own to ponder, well . . . I just don't give a flying goddamn.
So I said to myself, "Well, let's push this shit just one time."
Have you ever considered the 2,616,459,966 people between India, Pakistan, and China and the general global warming problem they create far more than the 76 million people in 1900 who grew to 275 million by 2000 that lived and caused a similar but far smaller contribution in the United States?
They're lagging, but they're causing a far more troublesome level.
What do we get if we order those countries to higher regulations? Probably a bomb shelter life for very few, not that it matters . . . we're cockroaches with better brains. Again, I am numb to all of it.
I agree with this reasoning in this next video, but regardless of touchy subjects for anyone, I'm gonna do whatever I want for jokes about politics. Politics are skeez.
This is the last time I take this much time with serious business.
"...Have you ever considered the 2,616,459,966 people between India, Pakistan, and China and the general global warming problem they create far more than the 76 million people in 1900 who grew to 275 million by 2000 that lived and caused a similar but far smaller contribution in the United States?..."
Yeah but I never said this was an American problem - I think its a humanity problem - all humans, (aside from the Aborigines in Australia that are still cut off from society) are contributing to systems that are not sustainable or cyclical. This isn't just about global warming - its about creating a future that is going to really suck for us, for animal life, for plant life, for all of us. And its a large part because we are stupid and lazy - and that goes for Pakistan, China, Timbuktu, and Walla Walla Washington.
but if enough people voice for change, policy makers CAN make millions of people change.
If we create national laws and policies (like laws against whaling) we can bring back populations of whales. If we all have an "I can't make people change attitude", then there isn't really hope for us after all. I think everyone's voice counts a little, they all add up.
well, right, that's just it. I'll be gone before it even matters. I guess I don't know why i care as much as i do. I'll just jettison my baby into deep space and hope some farmers on a distant world find him.
